Christina Mereu receives South Bruce Peninsula Volunteer Award

Christina Mereu was nominated by Bruce Peninsula Hospice (BPH) at the 2021 Town of South Bruce Peninsula’s 10th Annual Volunteer Dinner for her contributions to the organisation. We are pleased to announce her success in being chosen for this award.

Since joining Hospice in 2014, Christina has become an invaluable member of Bruce Peninsula Hospice.  Christina is not only an excellent Client Care volunteer, but also served as the chair of the Community Education Committee for three years.

Christina’s amazing writing and communication skills have served Bruce Peninsula Hospice well, as she writes articles for the newspaper, funding proposals and any other article that needs her expert touch.  Her writing shows her compassion and understanding about the caring work being done by BPH. This past year, Christina has been instrumental in the creation of the “25 Years of Caring Service” video.  On this project she assisted with filming and editing and has also been the writer and narrator.

Before settling on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula, Christina worked as a teacher in Kitchener and for Refugee Support and Advocacy. Besides volunteering with Bruce Peninsula Hospice, Christina also enjoys reading, gardening, cross-country skiing and cycling. Christina has recently completed her training and certification in Community Mediation at Conrad Grebel College University of Waterloo.

Bruce Peninsula Hospice was proud to nominate Christina as a South Bruce Peninsula Volunteer and is appreciative of her efforts and contributions to this community. She is very deserving of this award. Congratulations Christina!
